Ok, forgetting the two examples right now, is there any way via some other 
utility to check these values?

I'm eagerly anticipating moving the SMP machines to 5.x, but I (like many 
people) am in a heavy-usage production environment; can't afford to try 
updating any of them until we move to -STABLE.. hopefully the website is 
still up to date and the RELENG_5 branch will be following not too long 
after, but for now that isn't an option.
